Jupiter Marine International again selected the Panda 8 Mini DP AC generator made by Fischer Panda for its 2011 Jupiter 39 Express.

“We are pleased to announce that Jupiter Marine has chosen the Fischer Panda 8 Generator as standard equipment on our new 39-foot Express,” Jupiter president Carl Herndon said in a statement. “Of all the generators considered, we chose the Fischer Panda 8 due to its compact size, quiet operation and reliability.”

Capable of producing 62 amps at 120 volts, the diesel-powered Fischer Panda 8 Mini DP AC generator is netting strong sales in the outboard sportfishing market, with builders such as Pursuit, Boston Whaler, Cabo Yachts and Grady-White joining Jupiter Marine in selecting Fischer Panda for OEM installations, according to the company.

The Jupiter 39 is designed by the Jupiter team in conjunction with naval architect Donald Blount and Associates and is the first model introduced in the new express style of Jupiter boats designed to complement the center console models.
